"VII will be of enormous interest to anyone who cares about English literature and, particularly, about fine literature which is also Christian."
Madeleine L' Engle

"The seven writers highlighted in this journal were by no means artists for art's sake: they were idea oriented, involved always with perennial matters. Their deepest concerns are still our concerns, and VII promises to conduct an interdisciplinary dialog of major significance."
